Laura Parker

Shown above is a multi-media collage that implements magazine cutouts and different colors of paint. I particularly find this piece attractive and appealing, partially because of its disregard for implied compositional rules. It is extremely busy, and there is hardly any central focal point. However, the sheer amount of parts in this collage make it into quite an impressive view into the complexity of cities. The fact that there in a strip of sky showing at the top gives the busy maze of city life a backdrop of calm, which helps to create interest in a more traditional artistic and symbolic way.
